Meet a true explorer who might lead humanity to make interstellar travel a reality by developing the world’s first antimatter rocket. Through his fascinating speech at TEDxDanubia, you will have an understanding on how positrons meet electrons to reach an energy level to travel faster and farther than you could ever imagine. The 31‐year‐old Air Force pilot is Co‐founder and CEO of Positron Dynamics, the company that is pioneering the use of antimatter in space propulsion. He has a BA degree in Physics from Wesleyan University in Connecticut, a BSc in Engineering & Applied Physics from Columbia University, New York, a PhD from the Centre of Excellence in Antimatter Matter Studies at the Australian National University and is one of 13 fellows at WIRED 2015 Innovation Fellowships recognized for his work in antimatter propulsion. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
